Welcome to the Department of Electronics, a department dedicated to world-leading research and teaching in Electronic Engineering. Our research groups play significant roles on the national and international stage, collaborating with major industries and securing funding from research councils. In the latest REF assessment, 87% of our work was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent. With respect to our teaching, in the most recent NSS survey in 2015 we were rated in the top 10 for overall quality and in the top three for teaching quality, an achievement of which we are very proud. We offer a wide range of degree programmes specifically designed to educate you to be a world class engineer and maximise your full potential.

Researchers in the Department of Electronics, led by Prof Atsufumi Hirohata are involved in a new EU funded project, led by Università Politecnica delle Marche in Italy. The project consists of a multidisciplinary team of companies, scientists and technologists, which is composed by a network of 25 Countries across Europe and Israel. The project aims to find an innovative way to overcome the difficulties in the access to Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) that are expected to depress industrial sectors vital to Europe.
